What we learned in those boring science classes we’ve been at is that a man cannot live without food or water for more than 3-4 days.
Well, our teachers were definitely wrong if what you’re about to read next is true.
Prahlad Jani, an Indian saint claims that he hasn’t eaten or drunk for over 70 years. He believes he is blessed by a Goddess who provides him food and water through a hole in his mouth which allows him to live without the two main necessities.
Now to prove these claims, doctors ran some investigation tests on Prahlad Jani on two different occasions.
First Test (2003)
In the year 2003 doctors ran the first test to prove these claims. He was kept under observation for 10 straight days without water and food. If the doctors are to be believed, the report says that Prahlad Jani’s condition was totally normal but they did notice some abnormal activity in the palate of his mouth. He also didn’t pass urine in these 10 days. The only difference in his body was his weight that dropped slightly.
Second Test (2010)
The second test was observed by a specialist doctor and a team of researchers from the Indian Defence. Jani’s toilet was sealed
and the only contact with water was to gargle and take a bath. No food was given to him. After observing him for 15 days the doctor and researchers found out that his body conditions were as good as of a person half his age.
The reports from these two tests have been kept confidential for some reasons and that has made people doubt about the authenticity of it.
The mystery behind Prahlad Jani has left us all confused. Can a man really live without food and water or is this all a facade? Prahlad Jani has the backing of Doctors which makes it an extraordinary case. Though the main question that arises here is that why would a man not want to eat or drink if he can!
